Klairmant Gairlyng was a Charisian citizen and a priest of the Church of Charis.

He was the Bishop of Tartarian, one of the Princedom of Corisande's most respected prelates, although he was a native of the Temple Lands. The Gairlyng family was not one of the truly influential Church dynasties but prestigious enough (he was a distant cousin of several current vicars) to give him a great deal of moral authority within the ranks of Corisande's clergy. He served his see for sixteen years prior to his promotion to Archbishop of Corisande, without taking a single vacation trip back to Zion, and had earned a reputation for unusual piety in the process. Having him acknowledge the primacy of Maikel Staynair constituted a serious blow to the Church of God Awaiting's authority.

He was also a member of the Regency Council of occupied Corisande. (AMF)
